  • Yeah that sounds about right. But you dont just stop like a period does either. It will go from red to brown to a yellowish and then clear before it goes away. And if you start to do to much, like moving around and stuff like that, it will start to get red again, so it is a good indication on if you are taking it easy or not.

  • With both of mine, I bled for six weeks after birth. It was normal, period like bleeding. Then four weeks after that stopped I had a normal period.
